Spicy Shredded Beef Recipe
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 pound lean beef chuck, trimmed and cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
step 1: Heat the oil in a large skillet. Brown beef cubes for 10 to 12 minutes. Reduce the heat, add the garlic, salt and cumin. Cook another 15 minutes.
step 2: Add the can of tomatoes and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add water to the skillet as needed to keep the mixture from boiling dry.
step 3: When cooked very tender, cool, then shred the meat using 2 forks. Place back on heat and stir until most of the liquid has evaporated.
step 4: If planning to freeze, cool before packing in freezer bags and placing in freezer.
step 5: For soft burritos, top a warm flour tortilla with the meat mixture, salsa, and grated cheese.
